3-D Options in PowerPoint enable you to format the bevel style of a shape with many more options than those available in the conventional Bevel gallery. And when we say more, we actually mean a whole lot more! You can customize 3-D options such as contour, contour color, depth, depth color, materials, and lighting, almost like a full blown 3-D program.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.

Depth, as a parameter for 3-D objects, plays a very important role. In simple terms, Depth is the distance from the highest to the lowest, and typically has a value that’s larger than zero. Even though you rotate a shape that has a Depth of zero, you won’t see any optimum results. So, you can first rotate your object, but you must add Depth soon after.

PowerPoint’s 3D options allow you to rotate shapes or add beveled edges. And these 3-D options are surprisingly powerful. In fact, some of these options are good enough to be compared to a basic 3-D program! While you can always apply a 3-D Rotation preset effect to a shape, you can actually rotate your shape in 3-D space on your own by altering the X, Y, and Z position coordinates.

Among all the Shape Effects in PowerPoint, the 3-D ones stand apart. For any of the 3-D effects to work, you must understand two important 3-D parameters. These two parameters are 3-D Rotation and 3-D Depth. Although you can rotate any shape that has a Depth of zero, you really cannot see any Depth within a flat object.

PowerPoint’s Merge Shapes commands open new opportunities and possibilities for you. Typically, whenever we need to create a jigsaw puzzle in PowerPoint, we source the actual jigsaw shapes from Office.com or from one of the many stock image sites. However, the Merge Shapes commands make it so easy to create your own jigsaws with nothing more than a few shapes!

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
